Map of range
The red-tail hawks range includes Alaska and
Canada to California. They are found through
the Unite State, Canada and Mexico
The clutch of 1 to 5 eggs is laid between March and
April. The red-tail hawk spend more time getting food
for their chicks then with their chicks. At four to six
weeks of age hawks chicks are ready to leave home.
They jump out of the nest and hop along. The two
parents will continue to feeding their chicks.
It is the top predator in most habitats. Buteo
Jamaicensis is bird of prey. A hawk’s vision is
sharper than a human’s vision. Hawks live
over North America from the high Arctic
tundra of Canada to the prairies, mountains,
forest and deserts of the United States and
Mexico. The best place to watch hawks is on
prairies, where there are on trees.
